To drop or not to drop...
I'm thinking about dropping my truck a couple more inches. I like the way it looks now, but there is still quite a bit of clearance between the wheel well and the tire. I think it would look better, but I don't know for sure. What do ya'll think?

I think it looks good now. But, it is a never ending spiral when you start down: larger wheel//tires - lower; larger wheels//tires - lower; etc.

I am with retired2001, I think it looks great now. In ALL things too much of a good thing is bad! With that said it is simply a matter of preference and trade offs, ride quality and clearance vs looks...
You are the ultimate judge & will have to live with what you decide, so again it is up to you!

This is a question that I have struggled with as well. So far i haven't dropped at all but thats only because I was considering a leveling kit as well. You obviously want a muscle truck look so I would just get larger rim/tires.
